An ACA facet that the GOP loves..and uses MORE than Dems do


Thereís an Obamacare program that Republicans use more than Democrats

Days until marketplaces launch: 41.

Just about every poll on Obamacare will show you the same thing: Thereís a huge partisan split on the health care law. Most Democrats support it, most Republicans oppose it and independents fall somewhere in the middle.

That partisan divide, however, hasnít necessarily translated into how Americans use the law. A new poll finds that young Republicans are more likely to have health coverage through their parentsí policy than young Democrats, an option widely expanded under the Affordable Care Act.

The poll comes from the Commonwealth Foundation, which has spent two years tracking how adults between the ages of 19 and 25 are reacting to the Affordable Care Act. Beginning in 2010, the health care law allowed young adults up to age 26 to stay covered under their parentsí health plans.

The Commonwealth Foundation estimates that of the 15 million young adults that have insurance coverage through a parent, 7.8 million would not have qualified without this policy.
